concert with the dutch knowledge for the climate research program. >> this is the study in the map here. >> furtherance of this project, delta alliance has awarded the engineering firm which specializes in coastal engineering and 80,000 grant for the project area, mission creek and this identifying a project area and looking at adaptation and moving to i is a key. >> it requires the city to provide the matching funds, equal to 100 percent of the donations that is an $80,000 from the city. the city has asked spur to be the project manager for this work because of the most recent success if managing a similar grant involving multiple federal and state and local partners to the effects of erosion along ocean beach.
5:03 am
and it has a tight schedule and requires the coordination and also the interest in building upon the proposed partnership as we develop and implement the city rise, and there are elements that we will need that are reflected here and non-profit partnership and building upon the prior work in this case and in the excellent science and to facilitate the development of the grant, funds, and the city, through the port, will enter into a grant agreement with spur, and will compensate spur for $30,000 for the project management services. >> this chart shows the city's contributions and you can see the port of san francisco, and it will propose and contribute, $25,000, also partnering with

5:05 am
and with your approval today, we expect to execute the grant and have the study completed by mid 2014. >> so we are asking for your approval to enter into a grant with spur, and we believe that this is an excellent effort that will help us move along and what is a very big project. and that we will all be engaging in for many years to come. >> so moved. >> second. >> all right, comment, woods? >> good afternoon commissioners i am really excited about this study, wearing two hats and i live on mission creek and so
5:06 am
the sea level rise is an immediate concern, and i also with the committee and we have spent many years working on developing the mission bay project and the port owned parks all around the shore line. and knowing how we can adapt to rising tides is a critically important piece.

5:08 am
that see wall is in the flood season and at 330, and the other sea wall are all to flooding and sooner or later the port has to deal with lands that they own on the other side of the embarcadero as well as the piers. >> i am going to pay attention to these studies as well and i would just put out your schedule, and for awarding the warriors, is they have a lease that will end in 2080. and you look at this, and this
5:09 am
is between, 10 to 17 inches, and 2050 and 31 to 69 by 2100 and so just kind of split the difference. and we have a big problem. and the port has toto as we
5:10 am
5:11 am
undertake it and we have to keep it in mind and we appreciate the public comment that the rarina has to take that into consideration and we want to keep this in the forefront and we as a commission have asked the staff to keep us updated periodically not only with the study but with anything else that we can. and i think that i also want to point out not just with spur. we are working with bcdc and i recently had the opportunity to talk with the chairman. and this is as you know, one of the number one priorities and i think
5:12 am
>> if we do our seven and a half miles and the others don't, that snot going to happen. i think that is critical to the future, and the safety of the city of san francisco and for the city and for the port. >> obviously, and i am delighted that all of these different agencies and departments are chiping in, and to help out with this study and i think that it is very, very important. and the more that we, the more, valid that we get, and we get from this, and we can sometimes, some time in the future, formulate the plan, and what we are going to do about it. and i have seen something in there, where there is a dutch company? yeah, and they are... and they are the experts in that field. and for any of you, who have been to amsterdam they have done a great job keeping the
